Dizzy to Cooperstown

My artwork featuring Hall of Fame pitcher "Dizzy" Dean on a hand-painted, vintage baseball glove is now part of the collection at The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

The painting was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame collection by their Acquisitions Committee in early 2019. It was presented to Hall of Fame president Jeff Idelson in March.

Glove as Canvas

The artwork is a painted 1930's era Spalding baseball glove highlighting the eccentric, colorful Hall of Fame pitcher and ace of the St. Louis Cardinals staff from 1930-37. The "Gashouse Gang" won the 1934 World Series during Dizzy's MVP year.

Hall of Fame Art Collection

The Dean painted glove joins approximately 1700 works of art in The Hall of Fame's collection, which began when the museum was founded in 1936 and includes works by Norman Rockwell and Andy Warhol.

The Hall of Fame acquires "works of art that contribute to the Museum’s mission of preserving history, honoring excellence, and connecting generations."

The painting will be part of the revolving of works on view in the “Art of Baseball” gallery or it will become part of the Dizzy Dean artifacts display, according to the Hall of Fame.

Dizzy at the Hall

References to Dizzy aren’t hard to find at Cooperstown. Besides the artifact display containing his Cardinals jersey, a photo pin and items from his teammates, even his cowboy hat from his broadcasting days is in the broadcast wing of the Museum.

A Home Run

I'm incredibly honored to have my art, my interest in the game and its history recognized by the Hall.

If the painting sparks interest in Dizzy, the era he played in or prompts conversations between generations of visitors to the Hall, then that's as good as a home run to me!

Many thanks to the folks at the Hall of Fame, to those who have encouraged and supported me, and those who enjoy the art I make!

Dizzy was painted in 2016 and has previously been a part of a group exhibit in North Carolina.
